Acute-Onset Postsynaptic Events. Glutamate released from primary afferents activates two primary receptor-linked ionophores: • AMPA. Activation produces a fast response (depolarization) that increases membrane permeability to sodium, yielding a prominent but transient depolarization. This likely accounts for the majority of the acute activation produced by brief activation of both low- and high-threshold afferents. , calcium-permeable AMPA ionophores) and play a role in spinal facilitatory processes.

Spinothalamic fibers • The cells of origin of the spinothalamic tract are the most extensively studied of the ventrolateral tract systems. Axons originating in the marginal layer and the neck of the nucleus proprius ascend predominantly in the contralateral ventral quadrant. • Clinical experience suggests that the crossing may occur as much as several segments more rostrally. Thus, after spinal ventrolateral cordotomy the analgesic level may be several dermatomes caudal to the section. • Although crossed fibers predominate, uncrossed fibers also represent an appreciable component of the spinothalamic population.
